That sums up City (or Joey as I prefer to call him) and Suzy Sunshine. Their story starts with Suzy stranded on the side of the road. Her car is broken down and her best friend isn’t answering the phone. Along comes a biker named City to save the day/ City helps Suzy get her car fixed and offers to get her home safe and sound. These two couldn’t be more opposite if they tried, but they hit it off. I liked the premise of this story. I’m a sucker for the bad boy with a good heart and the good girl who’s not all that good. I really loved Joey’s character. He made the book for me. He was alpha, sexy, but also had a sweet side. And the guy who narrated him in the audiobook had the best accent. He was just so fun to listen to. Now Suzy… Suzy’s judgmental side really bothered me. When it came to Joey, she seemed to jump to conclusions and perceive the worst. She got over her misconceptions fairly quickly but I was still irked by her. Throttle Me was a nice start to the Men of Inked series. I did like the characters and the story was enjoyable. I just wanted more. I wish there was a little more to the story. When I get time I’ll definitely give the second book a go. Especially now that I see it’s City’s younger brother Mikey’s book! I liked him a lot in this one :)

What I got was an overly 'sweet' story that had a Hero who owned a tattoo studio with his siblings who just happened to ride a Harley. City was a 'sweet as pie' alpha if there is such a thing. Suzy was a straight laced school teacher who was maybe a bit too straight laced for my liking. I have been reading some really dark books lately so it was nice for a change. I am not sure I would have lasted through the length of this one if I had read it at any other time. It was a case of right book, right time. I will say that it was a nice and realistic love story that had some really HOT scenes. It didn't have much else I'm sorry to say and for me I really do need something more happening like a side story or some suspense or even a big fight, just something. If you like a nice sweet love story involving a hot, tattooed, harley riding alpha I highly recommend this one. It will bring a smile to your face.

Suzy was supposed to be your girl next door, goody two shoes who didn't swear and was full of hecks and darns. Yet, her internal dialogue was full of fucks and cocks. Also, her lovable nickname for her best friend was "whore." Suzy made no sense. Also, She has some imaginary checklist of the perfect guy and perfect life, which is ridiculously bland and vanilla, and based solely on what looks good on paper rather than what HER actual likes and interests are. I did not like Suzy. City a/k/a Joey was suppose to be this manwhore Alpha who comes from an overzealous and fun loving Italian family. What he ended up being was a dirty talker with no depth and no real personality outside of his forced sex God status. What will I remember most about this book? City's nickname for Suzy is sugar....and boy does he like himself some sugar. So much so that he says it 143 times in under 300 pages. That's almost once every other page. Now remember...there are scenes where they're apart so really....if they're together, it's on every page. No, thank you. I feel like I've developed a cavity with how much sugar I waded through. My next read will definitely be unsweetened. Oh, I'll also remember the cover....because damn did the author get that right!!

    This was just an ok read for me. It didn't wow me, and it was quite unrealistic. It is a series though, and I believe the next book is about the hero's brother. I am willing to take a risk and see if this is one of those series that gets better as they go along!

    2.5 Stars Basically, this was a book all about sexual desires with little story line. It had potential to be a great book yet, it didn't work for me completely. Why add a small bit of story if you just wanted to write about sex?! I gave it 2.5 stars for: 1. Suzy's friend Kayden. 2. City's family. 3. City's love of his bike, friends, Suzy, family and his job. 4. Little bits of story line that was evident with out sex being the main part. 5. The epilogue.

City's love of his bike, friends, Suzy, family and his job. 4. Little bits of story line that was evident with out sex being the main part. 5. The epilogue. Perfect way to end it and a bit different then I'm used too. And City shares with her a surprise detail regarding the Gallos. 6. Dual POVs. What could have made it better? 1. Less sex. 2. Less F words. (Search button found this 352 times in the book.) 3. More story line. 4. No point in having Kaylee in the story since she didn't cause any real angst or relationship issues. This could have been expanded on. 5. Derek and his sexual harassing didn't do much for the story either. 6. Not enough friend time with the couples together. (Sophia and Kayden) 7. Not enough family time. And certainly no real involvement with Suzy and the Gallos until the epilogue. :( I thought his family was everything? I wanted that to be seen with Suzy not just a tell me moment. 8. More involvement with his friends maybe... 9. More involvement with his work and siblings since they all work together. I felt like we don't really know them that much and this is supposedly a series about them hence Men of Inked. over all The story had awesome potential to be a great story but unfortunately was wasted on sexual appetites. I didn't see the points of some of the story line. It felt like filler to drag out the book and to make it a "story" and not a sex book. Also, Suzy 's supposed good girl and innocence was lost on me. Her mind is dirty as hell and her clothes don't always ring true to innocence. Nor does her favorite term as she calls her BFF: whore, like its a normal greeting or endearment. Her sex fantasies were shocking too. As for City, he wanted to "ruin her" anyway he could. It's like he got off on it. Oh wait, he did. No shocker there. So over all, if you are looking for a pierced in 3 places, tattooed, sex fiend, dirty talking, in control in the bedroom, biker... Then look no further then City, aka: Joey.

This whole thing boy gets his heart broken, boy turns manwhore, boy meets girl, girl changes boy was what the author probably had in mind. Like we don't have enough books with that already... The problem is that there were only very brief mentions of what happened to him and how it affected him. One minute we are reading about his biiiig love and how it changed him forever into not wanting anything other than casual sex, and the next INSTALOVE and his first love NEVER mentioned again. Like she never existed. Yeah, that's not gonna work! All in all, I tried to connect with the characters. I really did! But it was just IMPOSSIBLE The book just seemed like a fast way for the author to make some easy money. Books ain't about that lady! Stop trying to use an already used up idea - and failing - and try to connect with your characters first instead of just coming up with ideas and adding them to the book as if it's a salad!

She is condescending and juvenile. The dialog between her and her friend Sophia is boring and takes up half the book. City, on the other hand is much more mature. But, even his dialog with his family deteriorates. It becomes extremely immature. So much in this story in unnecessary and pulls it down to the point of dreary and vapid. The parts that are supposed to create angst and tension come off as forced and artificial. The best parts are the adult scenes. Those are hot. The rest of the story needs the blue pencil to cross out all the drivel.

    DNF. What the hell was up with Suzy? I have grown completely and utterly exhausted by the naïve Heroine. The one who is sexually repressed and has never had a good sexual experience. She always starts off shy and prudish and then after one sexual encounter with the Hero BAM! she's this automatic sex kitten. I'm over it. A lot of the books in this genre have become formulaic. They all seem to follow this unwritten guideline where the Heroine has never experienced an orgasm or she's the DNF. What the hell was up with Suzy?

I've said it once and I'll say it again the reason for reading a book is for the newness of it not for the same old repeated story line. Maybe this book would have been a great read had it been my first book in this genre but it wasn't so I couldn't find it in me to continue reading it.

A biker stopped by to help her out. If I was her, I'd be sooo terrified! But what was she thinking? “I stared at him, mouth open slightly, my breathing shallow as I looked at him like a piece of meat through the gap between the hood.” “The only thing I could see was his crotch. I stared motionless. His t-shirt covered the belt loops and stopped just above his groin. Damn. He fills out those jeans. He has to be big.” “Everything about him is big – he couldn’t, just couldn’t, have a small cock, could he?" .” I started reading cock, groin, crotch, her sex life or lack thereof. Few more pages and there were just plenty of words about sex, sex, sexual blah blah blah... Then, the guy started calling her sugar... Eeekkk! I hadn't reached 10% yet and here's what I read... “She licked her lips and I swear to fuckin’ Christ my cock twitched.” Upon reaching 10%... “Get the fuck away from my girl or it won’t end well for you.” “His fingers touched my skin and I swear electricity flowed through his hand. I wanted more – needed more.” .” Yeah, it's not for me... So, adios!

Love would come someday if he didn’t fuck me to death first.” Suzy is stranded by the side of the road, when Mr. sex-on-a-stick, “City” comes by on his bike to rescue the damsel in distress. Suzy is sweet and innocent on the outside, with a very dirty mind on the inside, and I really enjoyed that about her. People think I’m a good girl, and I am, but my mind is filled with dirty thoughts that I could never share with a mate.” City owns a tattoo shop with his siblings (I love the close-knit, Italian family. We met them all in The Gallos, a free prequel). City is deeper than we first thought, and has been dealt some rough cards. But when he sees Suzy, he wants her. She was the girl next door, the untouched bookworm that every guy wanted to conquer. I wanted to make her dirty. I wanted to make her scream filthy words while I fucked her. I wanted to corrupt this girl in the worst possible way. She would be a challenge, and maybe I’d found someone worthy of my time.” Megan was listening to the book on audible while I read it, so we decided to discuss it. Megan:  I loved City's character. And holy hotness! Ana: I didn't expect to love it so much. And had no clue it was that hot! Megan: I was really impressed with the audio it was narrated by both of female and a male and the male had a really New York style accent which fit Joey's character to a T! I loved Suzy’s character too. She was innocent yet still pretty fierce. Ana: Do the man and woman narrators each read their own chapters, or is it like a play? Megan: Yes, each read their own chapters. I really enjoyed it. Ana: Was he sexy sounding? Megan: YESSSSS!! SUPER SEXY! He had that New Yorker Italian vibe going on it was really hot. And I absolutely loved the side characters of Sofia and Kayden do you know if they have their own book? Ana: That was actually something that bothered me a bit. I felt like I missed their book. Megan: Me too! Note: Kayden does have another series: Untangle Me, and Kayden: The Past Megan: I was also a little bummed that we didn't get a reenactment of City's fantasy of the sex on the bike.... I loved that this was a low level angst book it was a pretty sweet read for me. Ana: Me too. There was a little more talk of kinky than there was real kink. I want the kink. Megan: I absolutely loved mama Gallos! Ana: Read The Gallos. It's free and like 50 pages. And it's totally hot! Megan: Awesome! I love hot! I picked it up, and look forward to reading it. I'm going right into the audio of Hook Me tonight. Mikey's story. Ana: I want to also, but I can’t fit it in for a while :( Megan: I don't know why, if it was just the cover or what, but I always thought that these books were MC books. I was pleasantly surprised! Ana: I thought so too! Megan: I wonder why we both thought that? Ana: I guess the name Throttle and the bike on the cover. Megan: I'm really glad you suggested that I read this . It was exactly what I was looking for I was a little worried that Kaylee was going to cause trouble a bunch of unnecessary angst. Ana: I though there might be a crazy she needed to be rescued from. Chelle is totally in with our favorites. Harper, Aurora, Tessa. Megan: Agreed. I'm glad that it read the way it did.... I thought it was a really good unlikely couple love story. Ana: This was perfect for my blog slogan "alpha males in sexy tales”. Megan: TRUTH! I love me a good alpha male! And City filled that role perfectly. Did I mention that this book was freaking HOT? Ana: Yup. I'd like to see Chelle take a few more chances in the next one. She stayed safe but that's ok. Or maybe I just wanted more kink. Lol. Because she can write HOT Megan:  I laughed out loud at the party pickle. Ana: Yeah, I liked the element of humor thrown in. And I loved cute and funny Suzy. Megan: Sweet and innocent…but a hidden dirty mind. Ana: Rating? Megan: 4.5 stars, 5 heat Ana: Yes. Likes: •Hot, dirty talking alpha. •Likable, sweet, funny heroine. •Panty-melting sex. •Love all of the side characters. •Some humor thrown in. •No unnecessary angst. •Loved the narrators on audio (via Megan) Dislikes: •There were some story inconsistencies (She never rode a bike but knew every detail, make and model of his bike the second he pulled up.) •She seemed to have gotten more innocent as the story progressed. •Could have been a little dirtier, it was kind of a tease. Rating: 4.5 Stars, 5 Heat The Down and Dirty: Throttle Me is everything we love in a book. Sexy dirty talking alpha, sweet heroine, good sex, tattooed, pierced, alpha hottie, and a good storyline.

    Good story. Nice interaction between all the characters, but the ending seemed rushed and not fully fleshed out. Suzy and City had great chemistry. He has an amazing family, and I can't wait to read the rest of their HEAs.

Suzy Sweet innocent woman, control freak until the day she meets City.... First off I have to say I was dying to get my hands on this book simply because of the cover. I simply LOVE it and it is totally covergasmm material. Suzy’s a control freak and has her life mapped out - work hard, find a man with a stable job, and live happily ever after. She’s content with the status quo, but her plan comes to a screeching halt when he enters her life and turns it upside down. Suzy is a good girl, well on the outside she is. She never swears, She tries her hardest to fight off City, but her inner self wants to be let out. "He wasn't the type that settled down and had a family and I couldn't blame him. He was a playboy that led a different life than I did. He was on a different path." Suzy is afraid to let her inner bad girl out as she fears that people will judge her. When Sophia her best friend suggest she live a little and see where things go with City, Suzy does just that. Why did this sexy ass man that lived life totally opposite of me, want me? We didn't fit - we didn't make sense on paper, but that didn't stop my body from reacting to him, no matter how hard my mind said to ignore his charms. City gave up on love when his heart was crushed in college, preferring to be the typical bachelor. He spends his nights hopping from one bed to another and his days working at his family tattoo shop, Inked. A chance encounter on a dark road makes him question what he had sworn off forever – a relationship. When City stops to help Suzy, he knows that things will never be the same for him again. It was fun to watch City work Suzy up and get her to let her bad girl side out. “Laugh while you can, sweet girl,” I growled against her lips. “I’m going to make you scream all those dirty words you’re too scared to say.” I definitely liked the story. It was steamy with lots of sex, a bad boy tattoo artist, what was not to like about it. I can not wait to see what comes next in the next book in the series.

    I loved the image of City - hot bad ass biker (sucked in by the cover I think). He was alpha and dominant. He talked dirty and did some lusciously dirty stuff to Suzy. I just didn't get Suzy AT ALL. Drove me nuts with her 'will I, won't I', OCD tendencies. Sexy romance with little drama and for me, a corny/cliched ending. Throttle Me was literally a modern version of a knight in shining armour and damsel in distress. 3 1/2 jumbled and confused stars.

    this book really turned around for me. It started off kinda slow but I ended up really liking it. I feel that the h tended to cause extra drama by pushing away so much. There was once exception that I thought just felt out of place but it wasn't enough to deter me. (although I wish it wasn't in the story) I would love to read more about this family.

It was a smart call, to split the story between Suzy & City's points of view, because I wanted to see the journey from both sides! And trust me, City's journey was just as good! He's like Batman! Don't laugh, bear with me! He hides his true identity behind his bad boy attitude, tattoos and piercings, which are like his armor! Same with his work & home - work is bright and colorful, whereas home is stark white, empty of personal touches... he suffered pain in his past, and has built up a wall around his heart. The question is, will Suzy be able to save him as well? I'm not going to say... you'll have to read it to find out! I will say, that I couldn't put it down! I was transfixed, invested in Suzy & City's story... & all the sub characters too. City's family & friend's gave him depth and served to emphasize the adage that you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover. Suzy's friends emphasized the type of relationship she should be embracing, rather than running from. It was so much more than just sex...although the sex was HOT!!! Did I already say that? Who cares! It was! It was smoking HOT! There, I said it! It was HOT! Oops, I said it again! So, what are you waiting for? Jump into the rabbit hole... take the plunge and grab a copy of Throttle Me! You won't regret it ;)

    In Throttle Me we are given the story of Joey “City” Gallo and Suzette “Suzy” – a very unlikely pairing. When Suzy’s car breaks down on the side of a desolate road she never imagined the handsome stranger straddling a bike would turn her knees to Jell-O. You see, Suzy is the type of gal that has lists. Lists of qualities and requirements for the type of man that would be a good fit. In Suzy’s world the idea of opposites attracting just doesn’t exists.

Lists of qualities and requirements for the type of man that would be a good fit. In Suzy’s world the idea of opposites attracting just doesn’t exists. Joey Gallo knew the instant he saw the innocent looking woman on the side of the road that he wanted to get her into his bed, he never expected that he’d want to keep her there once he got her though. Growing up in the Gallo family he had the perfect example of what true love looked like, but for Joey Gallo, he was happy living his life as a bachelor and no string relationships. Until her. One taste wasn’t enough and the way he was falling head over heels – a lifetime still wouldn’t be long enough. So this story hit all my marks. A lovable heroine that although had her own insecurities and was stubborn, didn’t ignore the attraction and wasn’t too hard-headed. Joey was all alpha male and I loved how he didn’t hesitate to go after what he wanted and how fighting to get it wasn’t an issue. The characters both were so starkly different that it just worked so well. I loved the bits when Joey would get her to show her naughty side, knowing it was there – that he just had to push her a bit out of her comfort zone. Throttle Me was truly a romance story about two characters finding one another in the most odd of ways but that bring out the best in each other by simply loving each other. A fantastic job by Chelle Bliss on creating a steamy, sweet and swoon worthy romance!

    Very enjoyable and I do look forward to reading each of the Gallo siblings stories! Hope to see how things are going for Suzy & City in the remaining installments! (view spoiler)[It kind of creeped me out to find out that Mikey is the one to City's additional piercing.....siblings should just not go there! (hide spoiler)]

    The premise of the book was pretty straight forward, City rescues Suzy after her car breaks down and they have immediate chemistry. Suzy feels like she can't be with City for some reason, but can't get over him. There was a lot of smut, which I appreciated, and I liked that City was a good guy who kept rescuing Suzy. The plot could have been a bit more fleshed out and Suzy had a couple times where she bugged me, too immature and helpless. The narration was so-so, the guy did an Italian-American, The premise of the book was pretty straight forward, City rescues Suzy after her car breaks down and they have immediate chemistry.

The narration was so-so, the guy did an Italian-American, kind of Jersey accent and I didn't love it. The side characters were interesting, particularly City's family and I will check out the next book.

    I can overlook a lot of things in a book. But main characters who are the epitome of stupidity, I just can't handle. The fact that within the first four pages, Suzy is... looking at City's crotch and thinking, and this is a direct quote: "Damn. He fills out those jeans. He has to be big. Everything about him is big, he couldn't, just couldn't, have a small cock, could he?" For some reason, I kept reading past this point. Things did not improve.

The final straw for me was when Suzy said "I may not be the hussy he was used to being with, but I knew how to get a man's attention." First of all, how do you know the women he has been with on the past are "hussy's"? Secondly, who uses the word Hussy? Also, this quote comes directly after she tells us about how much of a homebody she is and how much of a good girl everyone thinks she is. Stop. Just stop. I can't. Add to these issues, a severe lack of editing, and I never made it past Page 70. Throttle me? Yeah, with a fucking steam train so I can get this horrible prose out of my consciousness. 1 star.

    Chelle Bliss had me on this cover alone!! WOW This is the first book I've read from this author, the story was steamy with lots of sex, a bad boy tattoo artist, what was not to like about it... Looking forward to what comes next in this book series.

    3.5-ish/5....whew! HAWT! 🔥 I am absolutely continuing with this series! Great recommendation from my Sis! Easy, steamy, and enough of a story to not be *just* smut, you know? I enjoyed it tremendously especially as i, too, am a biker chic & like ink! 😉

    3.5 It was cute and sexy (almost too much sex) but it ended extremely abrupt. I have the collection but I was like "wait, what?"
